Main Station Stuttgart
Main Station Stuttgart

This winner of the first Global Holcim Awards Gold (2006) places the railway station underground to recover land and to create a new urban area, combining structural and landscape aspects. The Deutsche Bahn project to add a new high-speed line for this city laid out in an underground tunnel at a right angle to the existing tracks started construction in 2015. This will free up development space for a vast new urban quarter.

The Dryline
The Dryline

The Dryline (BIG U) addresses New York City’s vulnerability to coastal flooding with a protective ribbon in Southern Manhattan. The 12 km-long infrastructural barrier incorporates public space with the high-water barrier doubling as parks, seating, bicycle shelters or skateboard ramps. Embankments add green areas and spaces beneath elevated roadways are built out with pavilions for public use. In an emergency, the shutters close forming a floodwater barrier.
